Fender USA Newporter All-Mahogany Acoustic Late 1960s Natural w/Chipboard Case
Produced only from 1965-1971 in Fender's Santa Ana, California shop, this increasingly rare, all-mahogany Newporter small body acoustic delivers exactly the balanced, warm tone we associate with mahogany, paired with the crisp articulation of bolt-on neck construction and low, even action across an instantly familiar rosewood fingerboard. This Newporter has seen some loving use over the decades, with plenty of road miles ahead—we've priced this vintage Fender to get back out there!
